What is Records Abroad?
Records Abroad is a hub for the best, new music from outside the US and England.
Why ignore the US and England?
The US and English music scenes are heavily overrepresented in the international music market, so we’re looking further ashore to give a voice to incredible artists in other countries.
Who are you hoping to uncover?
We’re looking to find the next Arcade Fire, Sigur Ros, Robyn months before anyone else in the US or England.
Which genres are you focused on?
Records Abroad is genre-agnostic. We’re all about highlighting amazing, interesting and relevant music.
Do you consider yourself a ‘world music’ site?
We’re not exclusively focused on exploring ‘world music’ in the sense of traditional / folk music.
